Since it is Rainning

Well the weather is definitely going the opposite direction here in usually sunny southern CA! So went to my fall/winter outfit list to pull this one out.
Inspired by the following Chictopia post

This is kind of a nice transition combo. The layers and the materials are perfect for this chilly weather but the lavendar jeans are whispering the spring that should be here in mid  May. 

The schiffon like military green shirt goes great with these bright lavendar skinny jeans. I am so upset with myself that I didn't buy more colors of these pants when F21 was selling them for like $14 and they had every color. I would have loved an electric blue one or yellow or bright kelly green. My military boots which I have not had the heart to get rid of are not looking that bad today. 

You can see the inspiration photo had a cream colored snood with black coat, I kind of swapped those colors. I will probably add a khaki or black trench on top at night since it is probably going to be even cooler! I am not really complainning though. There are still so many cute combos in my fall/winter list so I am fine going with whatever weather. As long as I know in advance!

Green Blouse - H&M
Cream Cardi & Lavendar Pants - Forever 21
Snood - Thread Show
Belt - Ralph Lauren
Boots - Steve Madden

Today's Activities: We were greeted with spring showers this morning so the outdoor class was cancelled. Decided to hit our usual indoor play area then the chuck-e-cheese they were meeting at as I need at least a 1 adult to 1 child ratio in Chuck-e-cheese. We got in just in time as they had reached maxiumum capacity by 10 AM which is normal in San Diego when it rains. Everything here is outdoors and open so when it rains there are just very few places you can go with kids.
We are supposed to host a playdate at our house this afternoon then hoping my husband will come early so I can take off with my Mom and aunt to spend some time together and go shopping. We might have to drive out of our way to the few closed indoor malls if the weather is still rainning.

My youngest cousin's girlfriend sent this cute outfit from Turkey for my little girl:  
You like how she has learned to post holding her skirt or with her legs turned in like I always do!
